Abstract:
A magnetometer survey was commissioned by AEE Renewables plc on land at South Marston, near Swindon. The site has been outlined for the proposed development of an array of photovoltaic solar panels. The survey located evidence for at least five separate areas of archaeology, comprising of rectangular and sub-rectangular enclosures containing internal and external ring-ditches, rectangular enclosures, linear ditches and pits. Each survey area contained at least one enclosure, and in total an area of approximately 2.5ha contained archaeological features. The archaeology would be consistent with small, native farmsteads of prehistoric and Roman date. Agricultural activity in the northern part of the site has disturbed some of the archaeological features, with ridge and furrow partially truncating linear ditches. Additional complexity is associated with widespread variable magnetic response associated with natural features.
